Monthly disbursement of salaries and wages is a statutory requirement. The Will of the employers cannot prevail in choosing the frequency so that a trend is formed. Neither populism can override the statutory requirement.

There is no legal requirement for any advance payment of wages. But companies use to pay salary advance by the middle of the month.

I am personally surprised that in a credit constrained country which otherwise has seen rapid adoption of new technology, employers are still able to get away by paying so late.
